2010 Icebear PST50-4 Scooter Review

by Don
(DC Metro)

I bought a 2010 Icebear PST50-4 scooter. It was inexpensive, $850 delivered and assembled. It has had its share of initial "issues" but nothing that has been a huge shock or real problem. A running review can be found at the link below:


Mainly a tight exhaust valve and some loose electrical connections. Other than that it has been great and without modification it is very fast (GPS clocked multiple times at 47 mph on level ground).

The main idea to remember is that in the beginning the scooters may be shipped with loose connections, poorly adjusted valves and other problems that would be caught before shipment if they came from other factories. Expect to have some problems, but realize if you are handy they are easy to resolve.

Still running NEW
by: DonB

Just to let people know this scooter is still running well. Just added a new battery and replaced the exhaust pipe last year, but other than that it has been flawless.

Ice Bear is a real bear? NEW
by: J Cross

I finally saw one of these scoots parked in a parking lot. I was riding my Adly Moto Thunderbike 150 and was hoping the owner would come out. The Ice Bear has to be one of the smallest scooters I have ever seen. It has this huge pouch built into the front cover that can hold a large newspaper or a 12 pack of beer... if you take the beer out of the package.
I'd have to say that based off of looks its not a bad looking bike at all but I did not get to ride along side it.

10 Month Update NEW
by: Anonymous

Been away for awhile. After 10 months and 2000 miles my ownership experience has been up and down; but mainly up.

But this is because I am good at fixing problems. If someone without mechanical skills owned the scooter, the experience might be a nightmare.

March 2012 Update NEW
by: Anonymous

After my most recent trip to the dealer, it seems that the starting issue was due to a loose wire running into the kill switch. Since the connector was tightened up, the scooter has started every time.

I am feeling much better at this point.

Update NEW
by: Don B

Just an update. My experience has not been going as well as I had hoped. At this point the scooter has been incredibly unreliable. For some reason, which is yet to be determined, it will intermittently not start. This normally occurs after I ride it for a while, park it and come back a couple hours later. This does not inspire in my ability to use it for daily transportation.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
